“They should only rent these rooms by the hour! (And probably do)”
Reviewed 1 December 2008

I have stayed in some real stink holes in my time, but this one was by far the worst! When I got to my room there was marijuana stems between the sheets and it appeared the sheets had been used by a hooker just before I arrived. I also found a used tampon in the dresser drawer. When I complained to the manager, he demanded I leave and called the police. If I could have found another room anywhere in town I most certainly would have, and even seriously considered sleeping in my car. After reflection, I should have. This place is the most disgusting and vile place I have ever seen! DO NOT GO NEAR THIS PLACE!

We have a high tolerance for the occasional "mom & pop" or even a slightly "flea-bag" motel. This place was over our line, which was pretty low.

- Parked next to abandon vehicle with two flat tires
- Drunk approached us for beer, followed us in to the lobby and then we discovered he was a resident there.
- First room hadn't been cleaned. Second room was only slightly better.
- Large dog in next room barked
- Random person pounded on our door very late
- Hard core porn on the TV.

We considered leaving, but knew we couldn't get a refund. We steeled ourselves, got thru the night and then first thing in the morning my husband looked at me and I said, "Let's get out of this skank-hole." We both burst out laughing and had a pretty jolly time packing up to get as far from this place as possible.

Only reason I stopped there was I had a coupon giving a reduced rate. They refused to honor it because the state fair was there that weekend. Found out later the state fair ended a few hour before we checked in. Breakfast was minimal. It might have been worth the reduced rate but not the rate they charged. Because they did not honor their own coupon, I will not stay ther again.

My husband and I stayed at this place this past weekend. NEVER AGAIN!!!! BEWARE !!!!!! Here are the reasons you should never stay there: (1) there was a horrible smell throught the building. (2) there was no clean linen in the room, just a dirty bath towel hanging over the shower door, and the blanket was in a ball on the bed _NO SHEETS< on the bed, when my husband called them from the room they came to the room showed him the laundry room and wanted him to make the bed. (3) no heat or airconditioner- did not work and the floor was soaking wet!!!!!!!!!! (4) this is not a family place adult viewers only watch tv (5) the whole place was dirty in appearance. After we checked in a friend informed us of some of the rumored events from there. spend a little more and feel safe-go somewhere else!!

AVOID THIS HOTEL!!!!!!

Just pulling into the parking lot should have given us a clue to just keep driving. There were unsavory persons in the parking lot and the motel was dumpy looking and we thought we might be in the wrong part of town.

When we went to check out the room OH MY GOD, there was a roach motel in the bathroom and the bathroom was horrible. The place was a dump! We decided not to stay and ask for a refund and the manager wouldn't refund our money. We ended up staying somewhere else, due to the unsanitary conditions and realizing they weren't going to give us a refund no matter what. We decided the money wasn't worth our safety and health to stay there. Terrible place, beware of this one!!!!

Stayed a few days and people running hotel seemed plesant enough. The room was a older style hotel room but was acceptable especially for the price. Breakfast was marginal, but was included with price of the room so you can't much complain. They are doing improvements around the pool area for next season. Overall it was not the Hilton, but it does not cost what the Hilton does either.

A nightmare...

1. Pulled into what appeared to be a lobby with very undesireable people screaming profanities at each other.
2. Got to room stepping over trash and unsecured doors.
3. The bathroom floor was sticky so I kept my shoes on the entire night.
4. Porn on TV for no reason.
5. Recepticle covers were missing, and the one in the hallway was burnt like it was just recently on fire.
6. The boxspring to the bed was broken in half which made for a recliner type bed.
7. The peephole to see out of your room to the hallway was plugged up with toilet paper.
8. There were people fighting in the room next to me.
9. There was someone barfing all damn night in the other room next to me.
10. And to top it off, there were roaches in the drawers and in the doorjams...disgusting.

Recap:

I had to sleep in my clothes with the lights on to keep the roaches at bay and leave the AC on high to drown out the fighting and barfing along with the undesireables roaming the hallway. All in all I got about 1.5 hours of sleep which ruined my entire Sunday.
